Full of fury, but not much sound

It's been a mild winter. Temperatures have generally been well above normal (although the past few weeks have been cold), and there has hardly been any snow: 8.6 inches from 1 July through yesterday.

Today we're making up some ground with the season's first northeaster, and it's a big one. It didn't look so impressive this morning, but this afternoon the winds have picked up, and the blizzard warning (something we don't see every year) issued by the NWS Portland office seems quite justified. They are predicting a storm total of 10 to 14 inches. It's not the biggest storm I've seen--a few years ago we got 32 inches from a single snowstorm--but it was good enough to shut down UNH for the day.
